Apple's Earnings: iPhone Numbers Just Keep Coming Down

Apple Is Done With 3D Touch, Says Trusted Analyst

Analysts claim that Apple missed the mark by launching one redesigned model that was too expensive and two other new devices, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, that essentially look the same as older models.

It is estimated that third quarter unit sales will go down by up to 5 percent year-over-year.

What's your opinion on Apple ditching the 3D touch feature on the next generation iPhone? With any luck, Apple will be able to increase its profit margin on the iPhone X, so even if sales don't pick up, investors will be happy. Analysts will have their eyes glued to numbers, to see if iPhone sales failed, met, or exceeded their expectations. Notably, this price is more than iPhone 8 Plus by $200 and is more than iPhone 8 by $300.

The potential share buybacks and dividends follows the passage of the United States tax bill late past year, which makes it cheaper for Apple to bring back the more than $250 billion it holds overseas.

Departing Arsene Wenger wants peaceful end to Mourinho rivalry
All of this comes of course, because of Wenger's big announcement just a few weeks ago . "That was my first year in this country". Both Mourinho and Ferguson also recognize what Wenger has done for the Premier League, and for English football as a whole.

Meanwhile, Patrick Moorhead, Moor Insights & Strategy president and principal analyst, told CNBC that "the word "killed" doesn't make any sense at all". Analysts are cutting their sales forecasts, sometimes drastically. The traditional long press for options has worked well for Android devices over the past few years.

With a rumored price tag of $450, the SE 2 will use Apple's A10 Fusion chip. The reason? Kuo believes that Apple will be transitioning to a new type of display for its smartphones, and the new material set to be utilized would not be compatible with the feature.

This has resulted in Apple reducing orders for the iPhone X to 8 million units for Q2 2018.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the most famous analyst with KGI Securities when it comes to Apple, the Cupertino-headquartered giant's new 6.1-inch phone will have an updated display. While I am not sold on the news completely, I do see a possibility of that happening especially since iPhone X isn't doing so well right now. That could bring the price close to $700, a level that's proven successful for many years.
